Anderson & Low at Palm Springs Art Museum


今年春天到訪美國洛杉磯之友,記得安排到棕櫚泉市的 Palm Springs Art Museum (棕櫚泉美術館),欣賞我們代理英國攝影雙人組 Anderson & Low (安德森和羅),正展出一項名為 ‘Champions’ (冠軍) 攝影展。這個耗時數年的龐大拍攝計劃,專為Elton John Aids Foundation (艾爾頓·強爵士愛滋基金會) 創作,目的在以英雄力與美的肢體肖像,喚醒對抗愛滋病毒的侵襲。有超過40位全球知名運動員參與了這項祼體肖像拍攝計劃,其中不乏耳熟能詳的足球先生Thierry Henry, 美式足球明星Terrell Owens , 網球明星Billie Jean King, Venus Williams等。現場多達80幅作品,帶來冠軍肖像的視覺震撼!

Striking portraits and nude studies of leading international athletes form the basis of Champions, an eighty-print photography project created by the British artists Anderson & Low to benefit the Elton John AIDS Foundation. 

By depicting renowned athletes at peak physical condition, without clothes, the artists seek to celebrate individual achievement while capturing the potential vulnerability of all people. The subjects for the portraits are drawn internationally from a range of sporting disciplines and include tennis greats Billie Jean King and Venus Williams, as well as football player Terrell Owens, footballer Thierry Henry, sprinter Juliet Campbell, triathlete Tim DeBoom, skater John Dunn, swimmer Michelle Englesman, and rugby player Matt Dawson.
